She has developed keynotes and workshops for private companies, corporations, and associations, is the author of Big Gorgeous Goals: How Bold Women Achieve Great Things, and hosts the Figure 8 Podcast.

Standout Quotes:

  • “So often you get to a point in your career where you’ve achieved that level because of the things you have individually done, but to go beyond that, you have to do the next round through other people, and that is a very different way of working than achieving your own personal success.”– Julie [10:03]
  • “If you’re constantly in autopilot and constantly doing it in action, there isn’t that space to allow you to tune in and to hear some of those bigger dreams and bigger insights.”– Kristen [23:49]
  • “We don’t have to grind it out all the time; if we can learn the right skills that will help us make it feel easier and with them, we can have more fun while we’re on the journey, then that’s what life is about.”– Julie [39:14]
